DEMOCRATIC COUNTY CONVENTIONS.

In October, 1866, an informal Democratic caucus was held at a spring on Short's claim, in section 22, Montana township. D. M. Clover was chairman, and M. A. Victor, secretary. It was attended quite generally by the Democrats in the community, and the sentiment was to vote a Democratic ticket. In view of this they nominated a full county ticket. I have obtained only partial information respecting it. A part of the ticket was as follows: W. C. Watkins, for representative, H. C. Bridgman for county clerk, Nelson Carr for county treasurer, Samuel Dunham for superintendent public instruction.

October, 1867, Democratic caucus in Buntain building, Oswego. W. C. Watkins nominated for representative Eighty-fifth district, H. C. Bridgman for county treasurer. The rest of the ticket was left for parties to run independent. Dr. J. B. Thurman ran for probate judge.
